My Rating: 6.8/10
Everyone has bad mornings. You wake up late, you stub your toe, you burn the toast…but for a man named Arthur Dent, this goes far beyond a bad day. When he learns that a friend of his is actually an alien with advanced knowledge of Earth’s impending destruction, he is transported off the Earth seconds before it is exploded to make way for a new hyperspace motorway. And as if that’s not enough, throw in being wanted by the police, Earth II, an insane electronic encyclopedia, no tea whatsoever, a chronically depressed robot and the search for the meaning of life, and you’ve got the greatest adventure off Earth.
I found this film extremely funny, not because of the plot but more of the lug of it. It was so stupid and without purpose that I really enjoyed it :P.
I totally recommend it at least just once.
